Because of Chris Harrison's Bachelor taping schedule, they taped the entire season this summer.

I taped in July - on my birthday, which was fun - and you bet your bippy I studied!

Maybe it's a small sample, but they do seem to be taking smarter candidates so far.

Of course they want to start off the season looking good, they don't air in the order taped; some shows in a given week were taped on different days.

As long as they're not going for the total goofballs it should be ok
Total game show career losings = $171,522

With the new format, I expect to see about fifteen $250k questions.
Okay, so are we done? Congratulations, Tony! I'm so pleased to see you win.

Far from done, this is only the first week of an entire season...

I did say this was speculation, and it will take until May to find out if I was correct.

Not sure if this is the proper thread to post this on, but let's do it anyways.

Watch Millionaire this Monday, Oct 19, to see someone who will hopefully also appear on J! someday: Me! ;)

Best of luck to the both of you!

I think I need to unfollow Millionaire on Twitter. They have a tendency to post previews of Audience Questions, inadvertently spoiling the fact that the previous player goes out in the third act.

They're definitely not spoiler-shy. Especially in the weekly preview clip. >>> (that's where I got this pic) >>>
